CANCELLED - “Walkover” of New Span of Lesner Bridge Planned for Sunday

Friday, November 04, 2016

UPDATE:  Due to a water main break that has created some damage to the new roadway at Page Avenue, this area will still be an active construction zone until the repairs are completed and therefore off-limits to pedestrians.  Because of that, "walkover" of the new span of Lesner Bridge – scheduled for this Sunday - is CANCELLED. 


In advance of the opening of the westbound span of the Lesner Bridge to traffic, Public Works has planned a “walkover” of that span for pedestrians, bicyclists and the public for this coming Sunday.

This will be a special event for those who wish to walk across the newly completed westbound span of the Lesner Bridge.   It will open to traffic later that day.

WHAT:  Lesner Bridge Walkover

WHEN:  Sunday, November 6th, 2016  2 p.m. – 4 p.m. 

WHERE:  Special parking will NOT be provided; attendees should plan accordingly.

LOCATION:  Those who will be walking across the bridge should congregate at the right-of-way at the east end of the bridge between Page Avenue and Shore Drive (map attached).
